Undei Equality Of Application ,0f Its Pro 
Visions, We Should Furnish 200,000 
Soldiers, 600 From St. Louis. 

By J. M. Batdunnn 
The passage of the administration 
bill to rail* an army ol two million 
n«n by "elective draft, given promise, 
if the Negro is fortunate, of proving n 
boon to tbc race and offering an an* 
limited opportunity to raako history 
for hit coifntry. In addition' to the 
actual soldiers who will be brought into 
ervice of the Nation, the summary 
of the bill ahowi, "The, President is 
ithorized to exclude or discharge, or 
to draft for partial military service 
only, custom house clerks; persons in 
the mail service; workers in armories, 
arsenals and navy yards : pilots and 
marines; persons engaged in industries 
found to be necessary to maintenance 
of the nsjiitary establishment or the 
effective 9pe ration of the military' 
forces during the emergency." Under 
a proper application of the spirit of 
the hill, tha Negro ought to And plenty 
of room for a complete service to the 

| country. His loyalty is unquestioned, 
his war spirit has been 'tested and his 
availability for many of the other 
positions to which the draft is appli- 
sable has been demonstrated. He is an 
American from .the crown of his head 
to the tips of his toes.'and if he does 
not see ssrvt :e to his fullest capacity, 
it will not be his fault. 

The new army o.f 2,000,000 is to be 
created in, two years;" the first draft 
will be of young men, probably between 
the ages of £1 to 35 years and will call 
for 906,000. The country is supposed 
to contain RO.000.000 white' person s and 
10,000,000 Colored; if the Negro se- 
cures his full quota in the two ycafs, he 
will furnish 200,000 well drilled soldiers 
to the government. Naturally, the' 

. great bulk of these men will come from, 
the southern ststes and form a strong 

proportion of the allotment from that 
section. In the eventuality tho vv»- 
gooa on for some time, it is not too 
much to expect to see Colored soldiers 
from Dixie nn the firing line receiving 
from and giving support to white men 
from the same section; the spirit of 
comradeship which will be the out- 
growth of such a situation can be 
najight else than wholesome and servo 
to ameliorate conditions after It Is all 

A local authority estimates Missouri's 
quota at 47,855, of which St. Louis 
will furnish lu',71S. This means that 
this city should give ono soldier out of 
every 70 persons of tie required age; 
the last census gave the Colored popula- 
tion in round numbers at 42,000; uaing 
these figures as a base, which is ex- 
tremely conservative, we should fur- 
nish 000 men in two years or about 
half a regiment. Five hundred thou- 
sand will have to be furnished by the 
country by September 1, and Colored 
St- Louisana should send 150 uf these, 
and by September 1, 1013, mv should 
be on hand with 150 more with the rest. 
to follow In the alloted time. 

It is too early to form any definite 
idea .of how the War Department will 
plaeo tbe new selective draft In opera- 
tion; because its' plans are not yet in 
shape to' give to the public. However, 
the Negro desires and deserves unre- 
stricted opportunity to. give tbe best, 
that U. in. him to insure a couplets and 
overwhelming victory for his country; 
if he f ■"->, it- will not be because of 
disloyalty, apathy or stackers. It wilt, 
be for the sole reason his services were 
not used when they vera available, aud 
he~ stood a willing citizen offering to 
serve bis country along with all others 
who love to fight the Nation Vbattles.

With ail the dignity and assurances 
or the prophets of old, Kov. Andrew 
Jones, of Philadelphia, is in St. Louis, 
telling the people of- this city of wrath 
to come. .He is preaching at Mt: Zion 
Baptist Church. 3S2S Morgan St., whore

Mara men to repent of their wicked 
ways and pray that they may bo spared 
when the great calamity comes. 

"Prophet Jones,*' as he is- -generally 
railed, is a most, interesting charac- 
ter. He is usually seen with a large 
bundle of papers. Among them may 
be found some uf tho leading dailies 
of this country. These papers con- 
tain extracts" from the prophecies, 
which" were made by Rev. Jones years 
ago. Home of his predictions, as chron- 
icled in these papers are: The Johns- 



President" W: H. McKinley and many 
othor savings that have proven abso 
lutely true. 

In 1904 he told of a great* war across 
the waters that would drag this.coun 
try into it. And that it would be 
t he • bloodiest war that the world bas 
ever seen. Re -predicts .the destine

M. E. Zion Church Wednesday Night. 

Wednesday evening May 2 marked 
one of tbe best concerts given by tho 
TJlco and Mandolin Clubs of Lincoln 
Institute, that St. Louis has ever en- 
joyed. The program wan interesting 
from start to finish. There was hard 
)y a selection that did not bring en 
cores- The audience was large and 
very appreciative. Fully six hundred 
people cheered round after round with 
vociferous applause. 

Both the mule and ladies' quartets 
were far beyond th'o ordinary. The 
little seven year old daughter of Prof. 
B. F. Allen, Miss Julia Elizabeth Al- 
len, set tbe audienco wild with her 
excellent way of handling her violin. 
Miss Maria. Overstreet could easily be 
styled as the Prims Donna of Ci 
Missouri. Miss Henrietta Johnson 
violinist, proved that abi 
ia her profession. Miss Ethel Kobinson' 
was the star of the occasion. Her won- 
derful gift in expression caused tho 
audience to recall her for several se- 
lections which she did with much ease 
imd grace. Mr. James JelTrcs, tbe di- 
rector of the orchestra, comes in easy 
Tor his share of the praise. 

Prof. B. F. Allen, the president, was 
bubbling over with joi because- of tho 
splendid success that came to them in 
the great city of St. Louis. Prof! Al- 
len is ono of the. real leaders of the 
race; a man of high standing and cul- 
ture. St. Louis delights In honoring

not decided whether to have a sepunite

canlp for colored officers, add Would 
take "whichever wax least offensive to

This menns (lint nn npportunitv for

In many cities Bast, West, North, South, meetings are being 
hel^l public demonstrations made and eve nyoung women are being 
pressed into service to entice the men to join the army. Hugh 
signs, moving pictures and every imaginable device is being used, 
not only in the cities, but in th'e rural districts and country towns 
to stir men to a full realization that "Your Country Needs You.' 
On the street corners, in public places, in private places, the con 
slant sign is before ones eyes, Men Wanted for the army, for the 
Navy, for the Marine Corps. 

The constant plea for men is enough to stir the most indifferent 
to the height of patrotism. These appealing entreaties make the 
Negro forget the injustices that are heaped upon him in this court- 
try. It makes him feel that the only country that he knows any 
thing about is in danger and needs his aid. The picture of the 
siun, Men Wanted is constantly before him.' He makes up his 
mind that he will answer the call. Full of enthusiasm and patrot- 
ism he presents' himself to the nearest recruiting office for enlist- 
ment, only to be -met with the reply, "No Colored Wanted." As he 
stands there a few minutes, he sees the officer in charge begging 
men and mere boys who- happened to be white to come and join. He 
hears him tell them of the opportunities for travel and education; 
hears him tell them of meritorious service and promotion; hears 
this officer tell of compensation offered by the' government and civ- 
ilians to those who enlist now. All of this is done before his eyes 
Then we see him turn his face in the direction- from whence he 
came, with his enthusiasm. turned info coolness and his patrotism 
stultified. . , . - ■ ' 

The conscription bill does not mean the colored man, because 
he has always been ready when given a chance as .volunteer. It 
Well known that- he is no "slacker." but is always ready to do his 
"bits" in defense of his country, Why should the government at 
this time, when the enemies are without and within suffer, a class 
01 its most loyal citizens to be futher humilitated? 

Those signs should state class or the color of rheii. or the word 
men should be clearly defined.- The Negroes of this country at a 
time like this want to feel as other men. They are gathering in 
their churches and and places' of assemblages and pledging their 
loyalty, working up enthusiasm and patriotism. But what will 
happen when he wants to prove hi* (loyalty 7 He is told that he 
ia not wanted. This condition is not right, iV^is not just," "The 
mill's of God grind slowly, but exceedingly fine." \ 

Recently the Southern Press has been loud in its attack on 
the German "spies" whom it is claimed are invading every .rural 
district in the South spreading disloyal propaganda among Ne- 
groes. The Negroes -throughout' the country who knows something 
of the various methods used by the white man of the South to cre- 
ate public sentiment against the Negro, looked upon the "German 
Agent" .agitation with suspicions. Every one well acquainted with 
conditions in the Sou hh could see that there were ulterior motives. 
in this accusation. The real motive was to "strike the Negro and 
hide their hands behind the German plot." 

Murder Behind the "fat. " / 

The best informed foresaw that murder and intimidation 
would foljow. This fait is borne out by recent attacks on Negroes 
in Arkansas. It is reported that Negroes are hot allowed to meet 
in their lodge rooms.. Officers are raiding their meetings, taking 
their records and books. In some instances Negroes have been 
■'- fired upon. - i 

Public Whipping Pott* have been instituted in some sections 
I and a Negro girl. Oilier Lurosey, was tied to one poet, the men and 
boys of the town publicly whippirtg.her. One reporta%ays tbifttVe 
blood ran down her back to the street. A^Negro' youth, Cheater 
.Dunn was ahotand killed while fleeing the mob. Two other Ne- 
groes were shot/and several have been driven from their homes 
This is the real reason for all ' of this talk of German Negro plot 
It is high time for the white men of (.he South to wake up and" come 
to the full realization that they "cannot fool all the people all the 
time". -

Thu value of music m toe ecu a omj of human LiCe is neither widdj 
nor f oily appreciated. '. «., -"t*.i 

'We' reflect. to a greater or less extent is ow own peroraalities the 
rhythm and harmony which penuries all nature. .This rhythm relieves 
the monotony of existence and is' the agency through which we ore able 
to bring'ourselrea into harmony with the forces of nature and the thoughts 
sad emotions, of our fellow humankind. 

Music couetitutes one of the, most pleasing and highest forrns of 
expression through which thought and emotions find utterance. ' It is 
the avocation which provides restfulness from the strain of daily pursuits 
and comes as a solace to the weary brain and as a stimulus to the depressed 
spirits. ... 

Music forms the basis, also, of the most effective correlation and con- 
centration, of the energies and the purposes of the social 00%. The chnrch 
has long recognized its power and utilizes it in blendtng'tte emotions of 
its worshipers into s harmonious and unified whole. There is a psycho- 
logical value in the song which precedes the discourse. It corresponds -tp 
the preparation of the" -seedbed -by the farmer to encourage germination 
and a growth .of that which he sows. 

There is a marked analogy between the .rhythm of nature and that 
of which the mind of man sooner or later becomes conscious. It should 
be the aim of education '.' to encourage the discovery of this relationship 
thruugh the adaptation and application -of music in the training, of the 
child at every stage of his existence. , ' 

The jingle of the Mother Goose melody, that is always so welcome, 
and the soothing lullaby that brings to the child peaceful-slumber indi- 
cate clearly that. music is indigenous to the nature of childhood. 

If .we are careful not to conventionalize" too early in the life of the 
child that which is to supply this yearning and.longing for the form's 
of rhythmic expression, music will naturally and unecWiously weave 
itijclf into the fabric of character and personality. 's-

, not trace, "so la everyone (bat Is bora

worldlings cannot even "see." Their 
motives, their talk, . (heir behavior, 
great); puule the tmregenerate, be-

We are- reminded, bar* of a story 
concerning Sir Isaac Newton. It Is

Bunyan'e Eapatlanea. 
John Bunyan has set forth the 
- strangeness of the newborn to the eyes 
Of men In hla .picture of Vanity Fair. 
Wben_ the. pllgrlma entered the fair 
'there was a 'great hubbub 'about them 
.and that for three reasons.- First, "The 
pilgrim* were clothed with such kind 
of raiment a* waa dlverae. from ' the 
Iralment of any that traded at that fair. 
The people of the fair, therefore, made 
a great gazing upon them; some sale) 
they were fools, some they were' bed- 
lama, and some they are outlandish 
men.". (I Cor. 2 :7, 8.) Secondly, "But at 
they wondered at their apparel, ao they 
did likewise at their speech; for tewJ— " 
could understand what they said ; theft [ 
naturally apoke the language of Ca 
naan, bat they that kept the fair were 
the men of this world ; so ihnt, from 
one end of the fair to .the other, they 
seemed barbarians each to the other 
Thirdly, "But that which did not a little 
amuse the merchants, was that these 
pilgrims set very light by all theli 

Sinn newborn men are unaccount- 
able to the men of Vanity Kalr, It fol- 
lows- that during thl* present evil ag> 
"the offense of the cross" will not 
cease. Our friends will marvel at 
■ talk of heavenly things. They cannot 
understand our enthusiasm over fields 
of service which seem dreary to them ; 
why a young man should give up n 
career or a young woman give up so- 
cial prospects tp'.become a missionary 
Is to them an insoluble mystery. "So 
is everyone that Is born of the Spirit." 
But to none are the newborn sir mys- 
terious as to thoae who themselves are 
eeeklng to enter the kingdom of God.

The Struggle.

on the sonny side of some high uioun-

Reader, do ynat wish to become on*, 
of God's mysterious saeal Toar.part

and. reread" John. Irl2. 11 

Thl* leeson I* really a contlnnatloti 
of tha latter part of the lesson tf .lift 
weak, iar the glory of Jesas la hla on> 
aelflshneaa whereby he wrought oat re- 
demption for mankind, 

I. SeHlshnaaa Amid Her* Sun-Mind- 
ing* (vr. 1-U). TCne world doe* cot 
appreciate Jesus, It never bt*. ' "Hla 
own,"' the Jews, did not appreciate 
him. We are considering him today 
as he was about to depart from tha 
world that had despised and rejected 
him to on* that appreciated turn (Hen, 
14). The development. Verse 2 
tells of the Satanic suggestion that 
came to tha heart of Judas, In It waa 

personal desl re, and, corioectod with It, 
human conspiracy. Tha ctnotog to 
"lis upper room haa bean pointed out 
by a man bearing a pitcher' (Ilk. 
14:12-18), tha pitcher being suggestive' 
Of the Holy Spirit which waa. about to 
come- In the place of the visible Christ, 
and' It la in the midst of such sacred 
surroundings a* tola that Satan enter* 
the hearts of students. Tnla la a sag- 
gallon as to the power of environment. 
Environment la an aid. but it docs not 
produce effective safety: No moment 
la toohofy for Satanic -auggestlon. 
Jesus knew that' the hour waa come 
when he waa to depart out of the 
world, "Having; loved hi* own, he 
loved them to the end." Even though 
the- Father had given all things into 
his hands, still It waa necessary for 
him to teach the disciples once more, 
and Anally, the lesson of humility. He 
knew and remembered the strife 
among the dlsclpjes (Luke 22:34-28), 
Doctor Bona rd's famous dream, aualya* 
Ing aeai aa being made np of ambi- 
tion, pride and element* other than 
the love of God is worthy of consid- 
eration In this connection. We, Deed 
to realise the danger of selfishness 
even la our service for God. Have w* 
examined our motives! If the con* 
seaneucae flf onr **jna H ar% , either of 
task or ability, tempt* n* to: shirk HI* 
lowliest of service*, It la time for 
God's children to recall this scene and 
remember that "the aarvaia/ta not 
greater than hla Lord." Peter's strong. 
protest (v. g) brings out the fact that 
the washing by Christ of the dis- 
ciples' feet waa 
merely the ontward application 
Of water (See Bom. 8:9). 

II. Service, tha Evidence of Dlvl 
Humility (w: 1£-15). (1) This service 
was tender. Jean* bad all thing* (y. 
31, yet he' became the sen-ant of all. 
(2) It .was for all. AH needed a wash- 
ing. All the disciples Deeded to learn, 
and «n servant* must learn, to obey. 
iSi It signified aanctlflcatloD. We are 
■aved once for sdl, bat we are con- 
atantty Being stained by our contact 
with *y in the world; hence the need 
of renewed cleansing. -New lignl re- 
veals hew need of cleansing. (4) It 
signified deity. Jesus read the thought* 
of hie disciples. He became their serv- 
ant that in years to come they might 
know the .meaning of service. He be- 
caase their etample, and In years to 
come they remembered bis knowledge 
and service. (6) It waa for -his own,? 
The disci plea did not know what It 
was he had done to them. Little do 
we understand .oftentimes what-lt If 
the Lord has done to u*. Jesn* set 
them an example whereby he would 
remove the dirt of crime, self-seeking 
and every manifestation of selflshnesa 
from their sln-stalned souts. . W* "may 
call Jesua Lord end Master, and It ta 
well that we do so, for Master and 
Lord he la Indeed, but, If we call him 
SO. let u* not do nnant than make" blm 
In onr lives what we call him with our 
lips. The Idea here emphasised haa 
given rise-to «6ueh religious literature.

"verily, verily. I say" unto yon" (v. 
IS). . This 'Introduction shows, how im- 
jxirtant. Christ consld.e»ed hlfetenching 
at this point. "The aervant Is not 
greater Ihan his Lord" (See Matt 10* 
24; Lake 6:40; 22-27). , If sfce Lord 
bent to this lowly service,, certainly 
they, the servants, should not think it' 
beneath Them to do likewise, nor 
should the one that is sent (an apos- 
tle) consider himself greater than he 
that sent "him. John, who wrote this 
\ epistle, was oqe o'f the apdstles guilty 
of an unholy strife for power and po-. 
aitlon, and. desirous of brinaiag Br* 
down upon thoae who did not acknowl- 
edge end" follow Jean*,' but be became 
'a- marvel of love a'nd ^endernona. 
■ Knowing and doing are the twin pil- 
lars of-.the Christian faith, upon which 
the house of bappine** la built. .SucJi

riority of Christianity over all 'the re-

If/ we. seek to do service for othera, ' 
tbain ww have the right to can Jesaa 
Master and Lord, but if we seek honor 
rather than to be humbly .useful, ana 
aaall have no right to call him thus.
